I worked at Delaware North Companies part-time for less than a year

Pros

Fun place to work (sporting arena)
OK wage
Liked most of the people I worked with
Free Meal

Cons

Management was like a revoving door - seems everytime I came to work I had a new Manager.
Staff (Concession Staff) were fired like crazy - no such thing as performance enhancement - you make one mistake your out, unless you know how to stay under the radar (don't let the Manager see you do it) and than once you master that it seems some staff could "rob" the company blind!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your Managers first and it will flow down from there ( Guest Service is Guest Service but not if your Manager/Supervisor don't know what it is).
Spend some money on operations - using a till system from circa 1981 just doesn't cut it if you want to be competitive.

    I worked at Delaware North Companies full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities due to growth and turn over. Wide variety of positions. A lot of great places to work. If you are at the right location you will be part of an incredible team.

    Cons

    Work life balance is touted but does not exist for most DNC associates in salaried positions. Favoritism is rampant and you have to watch your back.
